To our TRADOC Soldiers, Civilians, and Family Members:
Ginger and I would like to wish you a joyous holiday season!
With the holiday season comes a time to reflect on the past year’s accomplishments, a time to recharge your batteries, and an opportunity to spend time with family and friends. In looking back on 2017, I’d like to thank you for your service and sacrifice in protecting our Nation and serving our great Army. You have each made immense contributions to designing, acquiring, building and improving the future force, and we could not do it without each and every one of you.
As many of you spend time with loved ones during the holidays, please remember those who are unable to be with family, friends, and their loved ones during this time of year. Words cannot express my gratitude for your enduring sacrifices and unwavering support to the Army and our country. We look forward to your safe return from the holidays.
From our home to yours, Ginger and I wish you a very Merry Christmas and a happy and safe holiday season. We look forward to 2018 as we continue to shape the future force.
Victory Starts Here!
David G. Perkins
General, U.S. Army
